29-Day Challenge enters its final week – help us reach our goal!

29 Days – $2,900 Corporate Donations – $29,000 Fundraising Goal

Honour the legacy of fallen Calgary Police Service Const. John Petropoulos – and support workplace safety and first responder safety – by taking The 29-Day Challenge.

We launched The 29-Day Challenge on Sept. 29th with a call for individual donations of $29 and we’re now into our last week – and the last phase of the campaign. Several donors have heeded the call for $29 contributions, but if we are going to reach our fundraising goal of $29,000, we will need the help of corporate supporters.

If you work for a company that believes in safety – workplace safety, traffic safety and first responder safety – please consider taking the challenge. Consider making a contribution of $2,9000 (charitable tax receipts available) in support of our Safety Presentation Program.

Learn more about the campaign and how you can help below.

WHAT IS THE 29-DAY CHALLENGE?

The 29-Day Challenge is a fundraising campaign in support of the John Petropoulos Memorial Fund (JPMF). It kicked off on Sept. 29th, 2012, lasts 29 days, encourages individuals to donate $29, and urges safety-conscious corporations to contribute $2,900 to the JPMF. The fundraising goal is $29,000.

WHERE DOES YOUR DONATION GO?

Each donation will go directly towards paying for professional speakers to deliver a one-hour safety presentation to a company, organization, association, school, conference, trade show or community event.

If you’d like to know exactly which presentation your donation is supporting, we will let you know. We can let you know which group is hearing the safety presentation, what day it’s happening and where it’s happening – and you can take pride in knowing that you helped make conditions safer for first responders and workers across Alberta.

The ultimate goal is to raise $29,000 for our Safety Presentation Program, which delivers safety messages across the province. These presentations make an impact and result in safer workplaces for everyone, including emergency responders.

29-Day Challenge supporters can also support the campaign by booking a Safety Presentation for their group – the presentations are FREE of charge in Alberta.

WHY 29?

Const. John Petropoulos passed away in the line of duty on Sept. 29th, 2000 while searching an unsafe workplace for a break-and-enter suspect. This is the 12th anniversary of his death.

HOW CAN YOU MAKE A DONATION?

That’s easy! Just go to CanadaHelps and type in “JPMF” for the charity – then make a one-time donation of $29, $290 or $2,900. If you’d like us to provide you with information about which safety presentation you’re supporting, be sure to include your contact information and a message saying you want to find out more about the progress of your contribution.

If you don’t want to donate online, you can learn more about your donation options on our website. Or you can mail a cheque – made out to the “John Petropoulos Memorial Fund” – to #347, 440 – 10816 Macleod Trail SE, Calgary, Alberta, Canada, T2J 5N8.

ACHIEVEMENTS OF THE 29-DAY CHALLENGE SO FAR:

- Over 700 visits to the JPMF website at www.jpmf.ca
- Reached over 1,200 people on Facebook

Stay tuned for more results of the campaign after it wraps up this Friday! In the meantime, help us reach our fundraising goal of $29,000 – make an individual donation of $29, or a corporate donation of $2,900, then tell 29 friends about The 29-Day Challenge.
